Wheel Brand Question

Is there any difference between the Rubicon Moab wheels 16x8 (tj/LJ) wheels and the Mamba Wheels? Here is the link for the Mamba wheels.

Probably. I'd imagine the factory Moabs are made to a higher standard being that they are factory and cost a lot more than the Mamba wheels. That's not saying the Mamba's are sub-par, just that the factory generally uses a very well made wheel and the price reflects that...to a degree. I don't know if the Moabs are cast as well or not. I have SRT8 replica wheels on my Magnum R/T and they are cast and made in China, the factory SRT8 wheels are forged (stronger), and lighter, and not made in China.

No outer lip for mounting weights. But, Quadratec does sell an exact copy of the TJ Moab made by the same mfr that made the Moab, and sells for $120. They come in 4 colors - black, gunmetal gray, machined, and silver. Look under "Quadratec Exclusive" in the wheels section of their website.
